Orders of the Day — Finance Bill: New Clause. — (Provision for Special Capital Allowances on Certain Ex- Penditure Incurred in Connection with Shipbuilding, Ship Repairing and the Provision of Port Facilities.) (2 Jul 1957)

Mr Peter Rawlinson: ...development of the vast ship. As my hon. Friend has said, it is not only that the length has increased, but that these tankers are be-coming much more beamy. It is no use our having a vast tanker fleet unless we have the means of keeping the ships at sea by having the facilities for repairing and maintaining them. We must have those facilities—maybe not immediately—to match the ships...

Oral Answers to Questions — Royal Navy: Aircraft Carriers (29 Apr 1959)

Commander Sir Peter Agnew: asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Admiralty what aircraft carriers will be available for operational duties in the Fleet in 1970.

Navy Estimates, 1961–62: Major Sir WILLIAM ANSTRUTHER-GRAY in the Chair (2 Mar 1961)

Sir Frederick Burden: The Dutch force managed to pass Sheerness Fort. John Monk was sent with some forces to defend Chatham, but arrived too late and the day ended in disaster for the English fleet. Sixteen English ships were lost, the "Royal Charles" was taken and for the rest of the day served as the Dutch admiral's flagship. Peter Pett, the then Commissioner, was held to blame for the disaster and was deprived...

Orders of the Day — Sea Fisheries (16 Jul 1962)

Mr Thomas Peart: But even if, as the right hon. Gentleman says the British Trawlers' Federation owns four-fifths of the fleet, that is not a sound argument. The one-fifth, which mainly covers the Scottish side, faces greater difficulties over a period. Its members are smaller owners—often family firms—and they face difficulties. It is unfair to compare them in that way. Those hon. Members opposite who...

Oral Answers to Questions — Royal Navy: Polaris Submarines (23 Jan 1963)

Mr Peter Thorneycroft: It is certainly within the capacity of British shipyards to put the Polaris fleet into service and I hope at a reasonably early date. As to the missile gap, I do not accept that there is a gap, although no doubt there will be a period when enemy defence is growing in strength and we shall be doing something about that. I think it will be dealt with in the debate.

Orders of the Day — Defence (31 Jan 1963)

Mr Peter Thorneycroft: ...ourselves? The answer to that is, "Yes". Obviously, British industry could make weapons of this category, but at immense cost in time and money. The successor to a V-bomber force or a submarine fleet costs money, but to do the research and development work to provide the "missiles would certainly double that figure. The United States has already spent up to date about £700 million upon...

Housing and Urban Land Prices (8 Jul 1963)

Mr Benjamin Parkin: ..., and because it is, everybody laughs and says,"They are a dopey lot in the Government. Why do they not go after the real crooks?" That leads to the suggestion that Rachman is not dead. All Fleet Street is full of the idea that Rachman is not dead. The editor of the Daily Telegraph obviously does not believe he is dead. Otherwise he would not have printed that"dead pan" article about...

Defence (Carrier Force) (30 Jul 1963)

Mr Peter Thorneycroft: ...taken to build one carrier replacement. This ship will be of around 50,000 tons and will give us, with H.M.S. "Eagle" and "Hermes", a force of three carriers. This decision will ensure that the Fleet Air Arm can maintain its rôle at least until 1980. I have also had under consideration an aircraft replacement for the Sea Vixen. I am now able to announce that the Royal Navy and Royal Air...

James Hanratty (Trial) (2 Aug 1963)

Mr Fenner Brockway: ...on me'. She said, 'He was not, you swine. You are mad'. I said, 'He moved too quickly'. I knew I must kill her but first I might as well rape her. I felt tense and overwrought and I felt that even fleeting love would help me. She said, 'Do what you like now. Nothing matters any more'. I omit several lines here, for the sake of Valerie Storie. I said, 'I must kill you now. It is either your...

Oral Answers to Questions — Royal Air Force and Royal Navy (Aircraft Replacements) (20 Nov 1963)

Mr Peter Thorneycroft: The hon. Member's recollection is not quite correct. I made a statement on the future of the Fleet Air Arm and the carrier. At that time it is true that a joint operational requirement on this matter and a study had been set in hand. On the face of it, so far as could be judged by men very well technically qualified to judge, there was a reasonable hope that this aircraft would be developed...

Orders of the Day — CONTINENTAL SHELF BILL [Lords] (28 Jan 1964)

Mr Charles Hale: ...oil deposits in the Continental Shelf could alter not only our economic position, but our foreign policy, and alter it a good deal for the better. Whatever views the hon. Member for Reading (Mr. Peter Emery) has about lawyers—and he seems to share those of Jack Cade—he has overlooked the part that they have played in our law reform. It is important that this House should know what it...

Defence (26 Feb 1964)

Mr Peter Thorneycroft: .... Subject to proper negotiations, and subject, of course, to the technical evaluation which is necessary in this as in any other aircraft, we would propose to adopt this solution in the case of the Fleet Air Arm. The third aircraft is the transport aircraft.

Oral Answers to Questions — Ministry of Defence: Mixed-Manned Multilateral Force (15 Jul 1964)

Mr Peter Thorneycroft: No such estimate is at present possible. It has not yet been decided whether or not a mixed-manned nuclear fleet should be created or, if sc, what size it might be. In any case, Britain remains wholly uncommitted to joining a multilateral force. The estimated capital and recurrent cost would, of course, be important factors of which full account would be taken by the Government in deciding...

Orders of the Day — Budget Statement (12 Nov 1964)

Mr Peter Bessell: which causes very considerable hardship at present. How much happier we would have been to have voted with Her Majesty's Government on the kind of dynamic economic policies which for a few fleeting days we hoped and believed might be forthcoming—policies which, as I said at the beginning of my speech, would have given incentives to working people to increase production rapidly and...

Bill Presented: Foreign Affairs (17 Dec 1964)

Mr Denis Healey: ...because it meant missing four excellent maiden speeches from the hon. Members for Westbury (Mr. Walters), Brighouse and Spenborough (Mr. Jackson), Dorking (Sir G. Sinclair) and Preston, South (Mr. Peter Mahon). I think that the concrete and pragmatic tone of their speeches contrasted favourably with the theological approach of the Leader of the Opposition. It was very primitive theology at...

Bill Presented: Foreign Affairs (17 Dec 1964)

Mr Peter Thorneycroft: everything that every post-war German Government has striven for. What we are entitled, however, to ask the Prime Minister is this: what is his proposal on the M.L.F., the mixed-manned surface fleet? He is the Prime Minister of this country. [HON. MEMBERS: "Hear, hear."] It is right to cheer a Prime Minister, but it is also right to ask him to stand at that Box and give a straight...

Bill Presented: White Fish Subsidy (3 Mar 1965)

Mr James Hoy: ...representatives of the industry, to discourage some of the older and obsolete vessels from continuing to fish beyond their economic capacity. As a result, there are now no coal burners left in the fleet and only a few oil burners outside the distant water fleet. That is why these changes have taken place. The special subsidies for the period to 31st January last covered a few oil burners...

Orders of the Day — Roads (Ombersley by-Pass) (4 Mar 1965)

Mr Peter Walker: ...the appalling traffic conditions that will result in the village. Added to this, in the middle of the village there is a roundabout at the crossroads between the road coming from Droitwich to Holt Fleet and the A.449 itself. The road from Droitwich to Holt Fleet is carrying an increasing density of traffic, primarily due to the fact that this is the first bridge across the river above the...

Railways (Meldon Quarry) (25 May 1965)

Mr Ernest Popplewell: .... I hope that the Joint Parliamentary Secretary will initiate a thorough investigation into all these matters, particularly this point. The Board informed the hon. Member for Torrington (Mr. Peter Mills)—who hopes to speak in this debate if he gets an opportunity to do so—that the railway unions had completely surrendered their claim in view of the financial figures which had been put...

Orders of the Day — Civil Estimates and Supplementary Estimates, 1965–66: Foreign Affairs (20 Jul 1965)

Mr Peter Blaker: ...not the point. The point is that, if the Americans withdrew, or if they were defeated, the rest of South-East Asia would say to themselves something like this, "We thought that the American Seventh Fleet and their tremendous resources were going to prevent South Vietnam going Communist. It has not worked, America is revealed as a paper tiger." Therefore, they would start reinsuring, as...
